Podcast: Chicky Gorgina, Venezuelan Child Star Turned Ice Palace Queen

Thotyssey’s Jim Silvestri and co-host Freddie Cosmo present a weekly podcast taped live at Red NY discussing NYC queer nightlife news and gossip, featuring a new interview with a dynamic insider each week.


Freddie & Jim return to Red Eye Studios chatting about VERS’ “Get Schooled” finale, the writers’ strike and… Bros?

Then  the delightful queen on the scene Chicky Gorgina is in the Thot Seat! She talks about her rising success in NYC drag; her life as a prospective child performer in Venezuela and the joys and problems of that upbringing; getting “cancelled” from standup comedy in Ecuador; her resurgence as a drag star after the pandemic derailed her early gains;  being part of a nightlife supercouple with husband DJ Senobyte; the hijinks of being the door queen at a “consenting adults” party; her gigs including new ones at Fire Island and Red Eye; and more!

In the news: a mogul of NYC’s superclub era gets a surprising apology for getting run out of town by Giuliani; Chicago queer bars boycott Bud Light after the Dylan Mulvaney collab “scandal” takes a turn; Drag Race / We’re Here star Shangela is accused of sexual assault; the Drag Isn’t Dangerous telethon raised tons for charity; some new rumors about Madonna’s shelved (?) biopic; RIP Gerry Visco, a particularly unique actress and academic who became a clubkid in her 60s.
